The Garmin Instinct solar smartwatch comes integrated with solar lens technology to cater to the needs of outdoor enthusiasts along with the power manager feature to allow users to toggle the battery saver mode for longer battery life on the Instinct Solar and Instinct Solar – Camo Edition.
It offers a list of outdoor activity and health tracking features that includes a body battery feature that keeps track of the heart rate variability, stress level, sleep quality and activity data to determine overall energy levels. In addition to this, the smartwatch also features Pulse Ox (SpO2)2 to measure blood oxygen saturation that is a much-needed feature during this time of pandemic as the COVID-19 virus can lead to pneumonia infection in which the lung’s air sacs are filled with fluid, leading to a drop in blood oxygen level. A sudden drop in SpO2 levels may indicate the early onset of symptoms. The device delivers up to 24 days of battery life when in smartwatch mode indoors and more than 50 days with sufficient solar exposure.
